space selfie 1

NASA astronaut Steve Swanson recently posted the first Instagram from space. Yes, even astronauts take selfies (hey, it probably gets boring up there). He’s posed in the International Space Station, and you can see Earth behind him. That’s all awesome, but please note the t-shirt he’s wearing. It features Serenity and says “Shipping & Logistics: Everything’s Shiny.” (A white or silver version of the shirt is available here).

And the Firefly design isn’t the only geeky tee he brought on board; he also snapped a selfie while donning a Star Trek t-shirt with the Klingon Empire symbol. Yes, he is that cool

See the Klingon tee after the break.

This Star Trek Tricorder Replica Small Messenger Bag won’t scan for life forms, but it will keep your essentials safely tucked away.

nail art - sherlock

When it comes to applying nail polish, I’m still a Padawan. I struggle with making just a single color look nice and smooth. Nail artist JeeA Lee is a Jedi Master though. She not only paints intricate designs of characters and locations from shows such as Sherlock (please note the London ferris wheel from the series’ opening credits on her thumb in the above photo), she also uses crystals, micro pearls, and more to add extra dazzling touches to her designs. I’m freaking blown away.

Her designs include subjects from Star Wars, Star Trek, Adventure Time, Doctor Who, and many more. I can’t get over how creative her work is and how she packs so much onto such a tiny palette.

See more examples of Lee’s amazing nail art after the break.
